Jason Perry works with the Cassini Imaging Team at the University of Arizona in Tucson, designing observations of Saturn's moon Titan and processing the returned images. Prior to joining Cassini in 2004, Jason worked with the Galileo Imaging Team, processing images of Jupiter's moon Io.
It’s been almost 17 years since NASA's Galileo spacecraft took meaningful data of Jupiter’s volcanic moon.
Jason Perry brings us a report on recent ground-based observations that shed new light on the most powerful of Io’s volcanic eruptions.
A fresh report was published online yesterday in Science Express on the discovery of a magma ocean beneath the surface of Io. Big news! This is a paper I've been looking forward to seeing for more than year and half.
